  • Advanced heartbeat analytics by Firstbeat:  ETE: 6.6.3.0

    This was updated from ETE: 6.6.1.0

    I am not sure what it affects, but worth checking to see if it improves any HR issues.

    Very interesting!

    I am not sure this affect WHR accuracy out of activity but new Firstbeat analytics could affect sleep tracking that use HR datas, people that have issue about it should test it. Hoping also that new sensor hub will solve the other WHR issue. 

    I think is better to test and speak about it after done.
